I'm surprised that anyone wouldn't get the animosity for an Argentina managed by Junkie Diago

Cheating classless t**t who mouthed off repeatedly about the Falklands

My father once told me he knew a guy who knew a guy who was good friends Maradona. He apparently said that Maradona was on coke 24/7. Makes perfect sense now.

Edit: apparently this is common knowledge. my bad.

I knew he wasn't the manager but I've seen him so much I presumed he was still a coach or something. But not even that. Oh well

Apparently Messi is the first player ever to score at a World Cup during his teens, his twenties and his thirties.

Yep.


A goal for each decade - the best of Messi's stats

- Messi becomes the first player to have scored a World Cup goal as a teenager, in his twenties and in his thirties
- Messi's strike was his sixth goal at the World Cup, with 50% of those coming against Nigeria (two in 2014, one today)
- He (2006, 2014 and 2018) is the third Argentina player to have scored in three different World Cup tournaments, alongside Diego Maradona (1982, 1986 and 1994) and Gabriel Batistuta (1994, 1998 and 2002).
- Messi's opener in the 14th minute was the 100th goal scored at the 2018 World Cup.
- He completed seven dribbles in this match - those seven dribbles took him to 107 completed at the World Cup, the most of any player since 1966, overtaking Maradona, who previously had the most with 105.

Nigeria cheated out of a win by that second VAR decision and Mascherano somehow playing 90.

Load of bullshit

Also don't get why he didn't have to go get the blood off his face at least like every other player does
